Sharon Ward passed away in the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 17, 2020 after a long and brave fight with cancer. She was surrounded by her children, brother, and dear friends.

She taught first grade for 8 years and preschool for 14 years.
She devoted most of her life to her children. She moved to Alpine, UT in 1978 and has lived in the same beloved family home ever since. She loved working in her yard and flowerbeds and making the world more beautiful. She loves Alpine and has served the community in countless ways in a variety of capacities.
